The Tank Game is an arena shooter featuring a diverse set of abilities and weapons. Figuring out how to use the items you are currently holding in order to turn a situation in your favour will be far more important than just having a steady aim. Much like the quake and unreal games of old items re-spawn periodically on the map rather than being given to you upon spawning. You must control these resources while also attempting to deny them to your opponents in order to prevail. The game has a strong emphasis on multiplayer and you can play with up to 5 friends on one PC in head to head multiplayer or CO-OP modes. Online and LAN play for more players is also supported. - This game is currently in development, so is the name... If you have any questions please ask!-

The Tank Game Patch 0.9.5 : Drop pods, menus and maps

Posted by on

Patch 0.9.5 contains mostly visual and animation changes one of the most noticeable being a new tank spawning animation. Tanks now spawn from drop pods that fall through the screen and crash onto the map below. The shadows of the falling pods give an indication of where a tank will spawn before its pod actually lands on-screen. The tank death animation has also been replaced with a more detailed and snappy explosion effect.

Other changes include a new look for menus, bug fixes and new maps.
